WE stayed here in the 3-bedroom house and a studio for 2 nights. The motel is located close to the city and was very clean, quiet and the rooms were well appointed. The hosts were very welcoming and provided accurate information on the local area and events. The BBQ area was a bonus.

Hi I stay in a lot of motels for work and have lost numerous article’s of clothing, cell phone charges, shavers even a credit card. Northgate was the first Motel ever to phone me and say I had left something behind. This is fantastic service an I will always be staying there when I go to New Plymouth.

We will never ever return or recommend this property to anyone. This property was one of the last vacancies in New Plymouth that could accommodate our family of five and with good reason!! Very pokie, small and renovated to a less than 4star standard. Mould in bathroom and stains on the bed covers...yuk! Our checkin however was a pleasant experience... More

As a rep I stay at the Northgate Motor Lodge on a regular basis. The beds are uber comfortable, which after driving all day I love. The rooms are clean, the shower has good pressure and I love that it is self-contained. Another bonus is that it is convenient to the town centre and the complex has a spa pool.... More

The appartment was very nice. This place was the best place booked in New Zealand. The clearliness of the apartment is perfect. Very well equipped. The size of the apartment is as large as could be our own apartment.

Excellent place to stay, comfortable and clean. Had the best nights sleep, even though the motel is close to the main road. Handy to Town Centre and main route in and out. Staff very friendly. Would highly recommend.

I want to start by saying that the word "motel" has a different connotation in NZ than in the US. In the US, you never know what you'll get and it usually isn't great. You get what you pay for so to speak. In NZ, a motel, and we stayed in about 11 of them, is clean, comfortable, sizable, and... More
